Scrambled Tofu

"This was the first time I tried a tofu substitute for scrambled eggs.  I thought these were fabulous!  I found the recipe on Pinterest, and adapted it from The Edgy Veg. "


olive oil
1 clove garlic, minced
1 small onion, chopped
1 package firm tofu
3 tbsp nutritional yeast
2 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp onion powder
1 pinch turmeric
1 tsp sea salt
1/2 tsp pepper, and to taste
1/4 -1/2 cup water
Franks hot sauce to taste (optional)
2 T. Tofutti sour cream
1/2 c. vegan cheddar-style shreds


In a large frying pan over medium heat, saute garlic and onion until translucent. Meanwhile whisk together nutritional yeast with garlic powder, onion powder, turmeric, salt pepper, hot sauce and enough water to make sauce.  Add 1/2 of liquid from tofu package and crumble tofu into the pan.  Cook for 3-5 minutes before stirring in sauce.  Stir in the sour cream and cheese.  Cook until most of liquid is cooked out.
